Answer: An Air conditioners perform two main functions: moisture removal and heat removal. Air conditioners use chemicals that easily convert from a gas to a liquid and back again. This chemical is used to transfer heat from the air inside of a home to the outside air. The lower the humidity level, the more comfortable you will feel at a given temperature. As your warm indoor air is drawn up through the filter, it passes over a very cold coil whereby the heat and moisture are removed. If you've ever noticed a PVC pipe running off your roof that drips water, that is the moisture removed from your home.
